Pure Magic...

I really like the characters that Mo Manning draws - like this magician.  The realistic details in Mo's drawings, like his narley toes [is that hair on them?] and wrinkled face, are unlike any other digi artist I've seen.  If I could draw like Mo - I'd quit my day job!  So fun to color!

[Note: specific information on supplies and sources will be found below under “Supplies”.]
  • A2 size base card with a left edge fold
  • Image printed and colored with Copics.
  • 2 cut papers layered along with the focal image panel at wonky angles
  • Ribbon tied around the middle layer [I would change this to just adding the Knot of ribbon as the rest doesn't show anyway.  
  • Diamond Glaze added to the seer's ball and to the moon on his hat.
  • Inside allows me to use left over DP from the front.
